You won't believe this but after the last election I was approached by a man who asked if I could help with an exit poll.
'Yeah I've just come out' I replied.
'Who did you vote for?' he asked
'Mind your ***!!! business' I replied.
'This is just to see how people voted so we can try to work out what the result of the election will be'
'All right - I voted for the Monster Raving Loony Party'
He looked at his papers and decided to put me in the category 'Other'
'I'm not having that' I said 'I think that is quite wrong. We could hold the balance of power and you will not have recorded this by putting me in 'Other'.
'Hardly likely' he replied.
'Look I know you want to help people get a night's sleep instead of staying up late to see the results, but you can't put me in 'Other''
So he put me down as a Conservative voter
